Sony PSN Gamers' Choice Awards nominees announced

There was a little awards show in Hollywood last night, but no one really cares about that, right? We all know that Sony's PSN Gamers' Choice Awards are much more exciting. Beginning tomorrow, users will be able to log into the PlayStation Store and cast their votes for their favorite downloadable PS3 and PSP games. As a reward, gamers who vote will receive an exclusive XMB theme for their console.

So what's the point of all this? Aside from letting your voice be heard and throwing support behind anything you might have thought was an exceptional title, once all the votes are tallied Sony will offer a 30% discount on the winning titles in each award category. For PlayStation Plus members, that discount shoots up to 50%. The categories include best PSN exclusive, best PSN game, best PlayStation Move game, and best 3D game.
